Holistic Veterinary Consultation

The initial consultation (50-55min)  involves an in-depth discussion of your pet’s medical history and lifestyle, a thorough assessment of the entire body and first treatment with acupuncture. Together we will create a treatment plan for your pet, that may also include dietary therapy, Chinese herbal medicine, and lifestyle advice.

Follow up consultations take approximately 20-25min, during which I will reassess your pet’s health and physical examination, followed by treatment with acupuncture.

The number of subsequent sessions depends on each individual patient and the underlying condition.

Other acupuncture modalities that I use where it is appropriate:



Applying electric current to needles inserted into acupuncture points. Electrostimulation relaxes spasming muscles and can aid the body in re-establishing nervous impulses when nerve damage has occurred (nerve root or spinal cord damage from IVDD, FCE, trauma etc).


Using laser energy to stimulate acupuncture points is great for providing "needle-less" acupuncture treatments especially on patients that don’t readily tolerate needle insertion.

There is no extra cost involved with these treatment modalities.

Veterinary Chinese Herbal Medicine

Research into the physiological effects of herbal medicines is increasing exponentially, revealing ways, to utilise plants to successfully assist treatment of cancer, infections, inflammation and counteract tissue degeneration.

Systematic reviews of clinical trials of herbal medicines consistently show a very low incidence of side effects of herbal preparations in comparison to pharmaceuticals and herb-drug interactions with conventional drugs are rare.

The use of Chinese Herbal Medicine can enhance the effects of acupuncture and reduce the amount of follow up visits required, if used correctly.

Commonly treated conditions with Chinese Veterinary Herbal Medicine:

  • Metabolic disorders (Cushing’s, diabetes, hypoadrenocorticism, kidney dysfunction, liver disease)

  • Musculoskeletal disorders (Chronic osteoarthritis, rhabdomyolysis, acute and chronic muscular injuries, intervertebral disc disease etc)

  • Behaviour disorders (anxiety, fear, aggression etc)

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Cancer of any form (in addition to chemotherapy/ radiation or as sole treatment)


Integrative Veterinary Oncology

Integrative Oncology is the use of scientifically researched and validated complementary therapies for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation, it can also be used as stand-alone treatment.

If used in conjunction with conventional treatment of cancer, it can drastically improve the outcome as well as the overall wellbeing of the patient undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation

Pillars of Integrative Veterinary Oncology:

  • Acupuncture

  • Chinese Veterinary Herbal Medicine

  • Dietary Therapy

  • Supplements (e.g., Vitamin A, D, C, probiotics, EPA/DHA)

  • CBD oil

Plant Based Medicine

CBD has been researched for a wide range of medicinal effects in humans and more recently in pets. Where suitable, it can assist with conditions like epilepsyarthritis, chronic pain and anxious or depressed behaviours (especially in palliative care), cancer and some neurodegenerative disorders. 

We will establish during the consultation if CBD is a suitable treatment option for your pet’s condition. 


Regular checkups ups will be required to establish effects, dose rate and efficacy for each individual patient.
